27 billion. this bill was nor $60 billion. that's the number that governor cuomo, governor christie and player bloomberg need. just having a vote doesn't mean much unless it's for the full $60 million. i don't know how the speakler do that if he follows his policy saying you have to have a majority of the majority. it's very difficult to get anything out of that conference, especially when you're dealing with the northeast. if the speaker can do it, fine. we've been down this path now for the last month where i've been assured time and again everything was fine. i was in with the speak with her governor cuomo, governor christie was with the speaker, i met with eric cantor a number of times and as far as i can tell he's been entire live straight with us. as late as last night he was trying to get the bill on the calendar. if this is not delivered and very quickly, republicans have no trouble finding new york when this comes to raising money and i would just say anyone from new york or new jersey who contributes one penny to congressional republicans after this should have their head
in my speech last night. governor christie, governor cuomo, blame yor bloomberg we met with eric cantor, who by the way kept his word throughout there, and the bill was drawn. it was supposed to come up thunderstorm this morning. and last night the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us the courtesy of a notice. he told's aide to the majority leader who told us, we end ended up telling -- so there's some dysfunction in the republican leadership. for some reason the speaker is taking it out on new york, long island, new jersey. >>> we want to continue this conversation, but i want to go to the house floor, congressman steny hoyer is speaking about it. >> we had to borrow that money, yes, just as if the dpurns went out and the temperature was at zero, you would immediately replace the furnace to keep the family safe and borrow the money to do so. yes, we would have had to repay it, and we would. thisably would have allocated $6 mill quote-unquote for a food banks to make sure that people in the richest country on the face of the earth have some s
is certainly much more than andrew cuomo and hillary clinton certainly putting their names out. joe biden is saying, yeah, 2016. maybe. >> he is not going through the ritual of saying -- he is clearly it does interest me. it's hard to -- i would separate this from presidential politics. as hard as that is for somebody like us. >> come on. it's tough. i do think this represents the fact that at the end of the day particularly in your intense dead looirn situation personal relationships do matter. two men that have been in the senate and know each other. i don't know of if i particular affection, they know each other and they know what makes the other tick. they know what the other incentives are. the personal relationships can matter. there's no question. i think it will give sort of credibility to joe biden's standing, and they will show the value of that kind of institutional knowledge and seniority. >> they say it's the deal and it's the program meter is 450,000 with an extension of the patch in amt and extension of unemployment benefits and all these sorts of things. are both sides abl
christie a republican, and governor cuomo should be deeply disappointed and angry that this congress would adjourn without addressing the pain of our fellow citizens. i have been to new york. i have walked the beaches. i have seen their homes that have been destroyed with my colleague, greg meeks. i have talked to to members of congress. congressman crowley, congressman pallone, congressman rothman, all who have had their citizens deeply damaged by the ravages of the perhaps storm of historical proportions that struck the northeast. none of us is immune, not from a tornado, flood or a fire. i deeply regret that i can't change this opinion, but it's not what we ought to be doing that. there are republicans that are grieved by this action and democrats on this floor who are deeply grieved by this action. this is not the right thing to do. i would hope it would be reconsidered. we have asked our members to stay here. every one of them. knowing full well they wanted to go home, just for a day toe see their families. mr. speaker, i would hope this decision would be reconsidered. i would hope th
to use the path to allow making a three-point. one is in accordance with the approach that governor cuomo in new york and governor christie have taken, we at the port authority believe in accountability. we understand there will be accountable to the federal government and for federal funds and notably to the taxpayers for every dollar we receive. second point i'd note is the port authority has already spent out of pocket about $200 million since superstorm sandy occurred on october 29. those dollars are real, we're prepared to demonstrate every dollar. third, i would note that we're not talking, none of our agencies are talking about a bridge to nowhere. we are talking about restoring tunnels and bridges and train stations, whether it's new jersey transit, nda, which exists, which serves millions and tens of men's of passengers a year. and the damage in the case of cat are to equipment that was installed 50, 60, 70 years ago which is frankly only available and can be viewed at the smithsonian. and we're prepared, mr. chairman, to demonstrate every come and be accountable for every dollar
